The wife has been after me about building her a new side table for the foyer so I surprised her with this. She found a pic of one similar online so I just had some specs to draw and a little building. It’s 33” tall x 17.5” deep x 53” long, and took about 30 bf of 8/4 walnut. The finish is 1 coat of Minwax Dark Walnut stain and 3 coats of Johnson’s Paste Wax that I tinted with dark stain.

Looks very nice, how is the top joined to the legs? I wish my honey-do list incorporated more woodworking, it’s usually stuff I don’t enjoy!

Got to work with some great wood, and made the wife happy, a woodworker can not beat that combination.
That is a good looking table.

I didn’t really want to get complicated because its just for us so I used glue and pocket hole screws with walnut plugs. If it was for a customer I’d use mortise and tenons.
